Is reverse proxy worth it if website requires login?
Considering a website that requires user authentication, all pages have a “welcome username” string that is different for each user (like most of the websites these days)
The application is caching different page components and sets correct last-modified headers also static content is served by a different machine using nginx.
I think a reverse proxy in this case will slow down the website, is this assumption wrong and I’m missing something here, could the reverse proxy still improve performance?
